Customer Question
I had surgery one...

I had surgery one month ago. I have a pain in leg it started just above my knee but its move to to top of my leg. It feels like a cramp. The discomfort it wakes me up. Is this a blood clot ?

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Any redness or swelling in the leg?

No redness or swelling, nothing seems to make it worse or better but I notice it more when I am laying in bed

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

You say cramp--does the muscle actually get tense?
